Eddie's Farm: July 18

Oklahoma City (41-55)

That's a wild one right there in Albuquerque: with the Isotopes taking a 6-2 lead into the 7th, OKC were the anti-Astros, and scored six of the final seven runs for an 8-7 OKC win.

Drew Locke was 3x4 with a triple, walk, and an RBI and Tommy Manzella was 2x4 with a double and a two-run homer (3RBI total). J.R. Towles was 1x3 with a solo homer and a stolen base; and Luis Durango (2B), J.B. Shuck (2RBI), and Koby Clemens had a hit and a walk.

Man of the Match: Tommy Manzella

Corpus (35-58)

Tri-City (12-17)

Staten Island never trailed in this game, though Tri-City came back from a 4-0 deficit to tie it up in the 5th. Ultimately, SI's final eight runs were too much in a 12-4 win over the ValleyCats.
